What is wrong with our legal system? Freedom of speech be damned, no one has the right to protest at a private funeral ("Anger over bill to Marine's dad," March 31). This solder lost his life defending freedom, but I don't think this church, or anyone, has the right to make this time more hurtful to a family. To ask the father to pay the church's legal expenses is outrageous. Kathy Benton

The op-ed "Joint custody should be the rule, not the exception" (Oct. 8) trots out the tried and true myths about joint custody and about court adjudications. The statistics on families with joint custody include the 95 percent of all divorcing parents who settle out of court. Unless author Ned Holstein is proposing to mandate joint custody against the will of both parents, that statistic will remain. Of the remaining 5-10 percent of cases that go to court, 75 percent have a history of domestic violence.

I apologize for my letter, "Is Obama a liar" (Readers respond, Feb. 26). There is no reason to justify writing the piece. Just because President Obama is doing something wrong, doesn't give me the right to call him a liar. I was right in pointing out the discrepancies, but I was wrong to attack him personally. Two wrongs don't make something right. Timothy Weber, Baltimore Send letters to the editor to talkback@baltimoresun.com.

Barack Obama had a choice between liberalism and the Democratic Party. He chose the latter and it cost him dearly. Liberalism, as an ideology, insists that government can do good and great things for the people and the world, if the people running the government are smart liberals.The Democratic Party says the exact same thing. But liberalism is an ideal, while the Democratic Party is that ideal's representative here in the real world, and in the real world political parties disappoint.

Davey Johnson dropped a Dwight Gooden on Stephen Strasburg . Scouting legend Art Stewart , who chiseled his first reports on stone tablets, upped the ante in describing Aroldis Chapman . Stewart called the lanky Cuban the "best young left-handed arm I've seen since Herb Score ," and in doing so crossed a bridge that spans 55 years, to Score's rookie season with the Indians. A few phenoms have come and gone since then. So who's better: Chapman or Strasburg?

I've just come from Cambridge, that beehive of brilliance, where nerds don't feel self-conscious: There's always someone nerdier nearby. If you are the World's Leading Authority on the mating habits of the jabberwock beetle of the Lesser Jujube Archipelago, you can take comfort in knowing that the pinch-faced drone next to you at Starbucks may be the W.L.A. on 17th-century Huguenot hymnody or a niche of quantum physics that is understood by nobody but himself. People in Cambridge learn to be wary of brilliance, having seen geniuses in the throes of deep thought step into potholes and disappear.

I was in Seattle recently to congratulate union and community organizers who helped that city enact the first $15-per-hour minimum wage in the country. Other cities and states should followSeattle's example. Contrary to the dire predictions of opponents, the hike won't cost Seattle jobs. In fact, it will put more money into the hands of low-wage workers who are likely to spend almost all of it in the vicinity. That will create jobs. Conservatives believe the economy functions better if the rich have more money and everyone else has less.

With Greg Gumbel and Trent Green as the CBS broadcast team on today's Ravens game, I was eager to see how Gumbel would fare without his old, gaffe-prone partner Dan Dierdorf. I figured Gumbel had to be better, right? Wrong. “Welcome back to an absolutely beautiful day in Baltimore, Maryland,” Gumbel said in his opening remarks as viewers saw an overhead shot of M&T Bank Stadium. “The sun is shining, the temperature is 78 degrees on this last day of September ...” Oops.

The thousands of Ravens fans who lined up along the lower concourse at M&T Bank Stadium the past two days came to exchange their Ray Rice jerseys, but what they got, in a sense, was a face-to-face apology from a team that still has some explaining to do. Which should remind us of an old saying that seems particularly apropos at this embarrassing moment in the history of what had been a model sports franchise: Every 24 hours, the world turns over...

It's almost hard to get your arms around. Three years ago, the Orioles were a divisional doormat with a 14-year losing streak and a frustrated fan base that didn't know if the franchise would ever figure out which way was up. Six months ago, they were a projected third-place team - at best - with a one-dimensional offense and a questionable pitching staff. Today, they are American League East champions and they are headed for the postseason with a chance to reach the World Series for the first time since 1983.

I am so angry right now, I should get a two-game suspension. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have sacrificed running back Ray Rice on the altar of their public image. His firing was cynical and expedient and has absolutely nothing to do with domestic abuse. As soon as video from inside the casino elevator was made public - confirming what we already knew from the police report, that Rice hit his then-fiancee hard enough to knock her unconscious - the team terminated his contract.

If you asked Bernard Pierce, he'd tell you that absolutely nothing has changed. He's prepared himself like he always has. He says that he doesn't feel any extra pressure. He doesn't sense any unique or special opportunity at hand. However, those who have observed the Ravens' running back for the past several months see it differently. From the first day of training camp, his teammates and coaches have noticed his increased focus and intensity. Matt Rhule, one of Pierce's former coaches at Temple, saw how hard the running back attacked the offseason rehab on his surgically-repaired right shoulder.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has appointed a three-member panel to distribute up to $3 million to the owners of historic properties whose tax bills in coming years will be higher than what government officials told them to expect. Retired Baltimore City Circuit Judge  John M.  Glynn, City Auditor Robert McCarty, and City Solicitor George Nilson will decide which owners will get the checks, which will cover portions of up to nine years of future tax bills. About 75 property owners submitted applications that could make them eligible to receive the checks, city officials said.

The misinformation in Susan Shaw's letter ( "State should clean up its act Aug. 22) compelled me to write this. She says don't blame commercial real estate for overflows because they don't overflow. She goes on to say the overflows were the state's fault. Actually, the overflows are Baltimore City's fault since its operates the wastewater treatment system where the overflows occurred. But even blaming the city is off the mark. Ms. Shaw fails to recognize a central fact. When it comes to water, everything is downstream.
